 * VMRuntime represents the interface to the Virtual Machine.
 * @author Jeroen Frijters
00049 final class VMRuntime
     * No instance is ever created.
00054     private VMRuntime() 

     * Returns the number of available processors currently available to the
     * virtual machine. This number may change over time; so a multi-processor
     * program want to poll this to determine maximal resource usage.
     * @return the number of processors available, at least 1
00065     static int availableProcessors() {return 1; }

     * Find out how much memory is still free for allocating Objects on the heap.
     * @return the number of bytes of free memory for more Objects
    static native long freeMemory();

     * Find out how much memory total is available on the heap for allocating
     * Objects.
     * @return the total number of bytes of memory for Objects
    static native long totalMemory();

     * Returns the maximum amount of memory the virtual machine can attempt to
     * use. This may be <code>Long.MAX_VALUE</code> if there is no inherent
     * limit (or if you really do have a 8 exabyte memory!).
     * @return the maximum number of bytes the virtual machine will attempt
     *         to allocate
    static native long maxMemory();

     * Run the garbage collector. This method is more of a suggestion than
     * anything. All this method guarantees is that the garbage collector will
     * have "done its best" by the time it returns. Notice that garbage
     * collection takes place even without calling this method.
    static native void gc();

     * Run finalization on all Objects that are waiting to be finalized. Again,
     * a suggestion, though a stronger one than {@link #gc()}. This calls the
     * <code>finalize</code> method of all objects waiting to be collected.
     * @see #finalize()
00107     static void runFinalization() {}

     * Run finalization on all finalizable Objects (even live ones). This
     * should only be called immediately prior to VM termination.
     * @see #finalize()
00115     static void runFinalizationForExit() {}

     * Tell the VM to trace every bytecode instruction that executes (print out
     * a trace of it).  No guarantees are made as to where it will be printed,
     * and the VM is allowed to ignore this request.
     * @param on whether to turn instruction tracing on
00124     static void traceInstructions(boolean on) {}

     * Tell the VM to trace every method call that executes (print out a trace
     * of it).  No guarantees are made as to where it will be printed, and the
     * VM is allowed to ignore this request.
     * @param on whether to turn method tracing on
00133     static void traceMethodCalls(boolean on) {}

     * Native method that actually sets the finalizer setting.
     * @param value whether to run finalizers on exit
00140     static void runFinalizersOnExit(boolean value) {}

     * Native method that actually shuts down the virtual machine.
     * @param status the status to end the process with
    static native void exit(int status);

     * Load a file. If it has already been loaded, do nothing. The name has
     * already been mapped to a true filename.
     * @param filename the file to load
     * @return 0 on failure, nonzero on success
    static native int nativeLoad(String filename);

     * Map a system-independent "short name" to the full file name, and append
     * it to the path.
     * XXX This method is being replaced by System.mapLibraryName.
     * @param pathname the path
     * @param libname the short version of the library name
     * @return the full filename
    static native String nativeGetLibname(String pathname, String libname);

     * Execute a process. The command line has already been tokenized, and
     * the environment should contain name=value mappings. If directory is null,
     * use the current working directory; otherwise start the process in that
     * directory.  If env is null, then the new process should inherit
     * the environment of this process.
     * @param cmd the non-null command tokens
     * @param env the environment setup
     * @param dir the directory to use, may be null
     * @return the newly created process
     * @throws NullPointerException if cmd or env have null elements
00182     static Process exec(String[] cmd, String[] env, File dir)
      throws IOException {
      return VMProcess.exec(cmd, env, dir);

     * Get the system properties. This is done here, instead of in System,
     * because of the bootstrap sequence. Note that the native code should
     * not try to use the Java I/O classes yet, as they rely on the properties
     * already existing. The only safe method to use to insert these default
     * system properties is {@link Properties#setProperty(String, String)}.
